Arts and a birthday cat

I finally finished what shall henceforth be known as That Damn Hat. Didn't end up looking a thing like the pattern, because, well, I ignored the pattern. It's a bit big, so I might give it to the boyfriend. But then again, I do have big hair, so it's not like it's going to fall off. Frankly, by the time the hat started to look hat shaped I was so sick of it that only sheer stubbornness allowed me to finish it, so I'm surprised it ended up looking halfway decent.

And honestly, I doubt I'm going to bother with patterns much. Maybe to get the basic gist of a design, but I like doing my own thing. Stubbornness again.

I think my next crochet project is going to be to felt my signature wristbands. I got some great wool and cotton yarns that'll work for felting.

And my roommate gave me the greatest idea for runestones! I was mentioning how the merge streetsign looked like the futhark "F", and she said that that would be cool as a set design. I have no idea if anyone would buy them, but hey, you can never have too many sets of oddball runestones, so it would be no loss if I kept them. ;)

I've still got a bunch of stuff I need to make for Sweet Charity by December. A beaded necklace in pink/blue/purple, a large bag in dark purple and dark green/blue, and sun and moon runestones.
And I offered myself up as a pitch-hitter, so I may end up making something else.

And, randomly, yesterday was my kitty's 4th (or 5th- the vet's not sure of her exact age) birthday! Exactly a year ago we adopted the world's sweetest (and dumbest) cat. She seemed to enjoy the Birthday Mice I gifted her with.

So here's the birthday kitty, looking confused as to why there's a shiny plastic thing being shoved in her face:
